About Vissia e Sara Fani

I am Fani Daniele, the son of Fani Francesco, who in 1970 was a sharecrop farmer here. The owner was a rich man with many properties, including the Fiesole area where my family lived. Here we met the owner that offered us this farmhouse in Scandicci. The house was then old and in a poor state. Francesco brought the whole family and his animals: cows, horses, hens, gooses, rabbits, and pigeons. They were farmers that lived off the products of the animals and the ground. I (Daniele) was lucky because I was not a farmer; I was a pastry chef in central Florence in the famous Robiglio pastry shop. Therefore, in 1986, when the owner decided to sell the propriety, I bought it. Since then I am an agricultural entrepreneur in the plant nursery that my family runs: my wife Mirella and my daughters Vissia and Sara. Slowly we renovated the building in 2004, and created the apartments for the agrotourism. In 2006, we built the swimming pool, necessary for a real holiday.

Vissia e Sara Fani purchased this farmhouse in 1986

Why Vissia e Sara Fani chose Scandicci

Conca Verde is a real agricultural place. All the members of the family work in the plant nursery and live in the house. The agrotourism is in the countryside, but 5 minutes by car from the centre of Scandicci and 15 minutes by tram from the centre of Florence. You can enjoy a relaxed holiday in the countryside and visit the most beautiful cities of Tuscany that are a maximum 1-hour drive away. In this house in 1970, my grandfather Francesco lived with his family. They cultivated the land and breed animals (cows, rabbits, hens...). They shared their products with the owner of the house. In 1986, my father Fani Daniele bought the house and restored it little by little. In 2004, the agrotourism apartments were refurbished, and in 2006, the swimming pool for our guests to enjoy.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Conca Verde is an historical stone country house. In the countryside near Florence. It is a small agrotourism with just two apartments, a large swimming pool, gardens, and a barbecue.

Conca Verde agrotourism is located in the countryside, but it is very close to the city, about 1 km away. From Scandicci, going toward the hills, you pass Vingone and exit at the city to arrive to agrotourism. Motorway exits are Firenze Scandicci or Ginestra Fiorentina, 5 km away from the agrotourism. Follow the signs for Vingone, Colline, Roveta or Mosciano. The centre of Florence and Santa Maria Novella station are 8 km away. The tram offers fast and good linking, 1 km away from the agrotourism. Vespucci airport in Florence is about 10 km away. The most beautiful cities of Tuscany, that we suggest you to visit, are: 50 km S. Gimignano, 70 KM Siena, 80 KM Pisa, 75 km Volterra, 75 km Lucca, 100 km Montepulciano. The agrotourism is near a riding stable centre, where you can go horseback riding. In Scandicci, 2 km away, there are tennis courts, football fields, and many restaurants and pizzerias, and a shopping mall with all sorts of shops and services. On Thursday evenings, in July, the city organises the Notte Bianca, an event where all the shops stay open at night and there is a market in the centre of Scandicci. There are cultural nights with music at the Acciaiolo castle, with extremely good restaurants. On the terrace of Scandicci municipality, there is an open-air cinema. Reachable by walking, 100 m away, there is a good restaurant; by car you can reach many others typical restaurants in the hills to eat a good steak and drink great Chianti wine.

Comme à la maison...

  • 4 of 5

Ce fut un agréable séjour à Conca Verde. Nous avons aimé l'accueil de la belle Sara, les fruits sur la table et la propreté des lieux.

Le bruit de la route n'a pas été trop incommodant, il s'agissait de bien fermer l'aorte de la salle de bain.

On entendait un peu les voisins de notre appart.

Merci

Claire et Jacques

Visite de Florence et de la région du Chianti

  • 4 of 5

Très bon plan pour visiter Florence. Le tram est facile d'accès et vous mène à la gare Sta Novella.

La propriété est très agréable, bien entretenue, très fleurie. Les repas sous la tonnelle sont appréciables et la grande piscine superbe. Le logement est confortable, propre et la literie excellente. L'accueil des propriétaires est chaleureux, convivial. Le seul bémol est le bruit de la route menant à de jolis endroits de campagne.
